Startup Grind is a global startup community designed to educate, inspire, and connect entrepreneurs. It is powered by Google for Entrepreneurs. We host monthly events in 350 cities and 120 countries featuring successful local founders, innovators, educators and investors who share personal stories and lessons learned on the road to building great companies.
Startup Grind is a connected online and offline network of vibrant startup communities to help fuel innovation, economic growth and prosperity at the local level. While Startup Grind was founded in Palo Alto, California, our extended network of Startup Grind chapters are located around the world. Our Dayton chapter has been around for 2.5 years and we've hosted 24 successful entrepreneurs, founders and startup supporters like Nina Joshi (UES), Tarek Kamil (Cerkl), Barry Besecker (Marxent) and Pam Morris (CareSource).
With each event you'll get food and drinks, you'll earn from successful entrepreneurial leaders, you'll hear new startups pitch, and you'll grow your network with Dayton's startup movers and shakers.
We believe in making friends, not contacts. We believe in giving, not taking. We believe in helping others before helping yourself. We are truly passionate about helping founders, entrepreneurs and startups succeed. We intend to make their startup journey less lonely, more connected and more memorable.
